Two strangers in their early twenties (Kutcher and Peet) impulsively copulate in
an airplane lavatory on a cross-country flight to New York. They then spend a
day frolicking in the park and musing about their future plans. Then they part
ways. Nigel Cole's plodding romance attempts to chart the almost-but-not-quite
relationship over the next seven years, as their outlook changes from youthful
idealism to adult regret. However, the only character who displays any
discernible evidence of maturation is Peet's, mostly because of her believable
performance (the couple's chemistry is much less convincing).
